It's all about me

I have some secret talents that I am about to un-secret by telling you. Be prepared. You will be impressed.

When I was a kid, my career goal was to be a spy or a PI or something like that. That, of course, requires special skills, and the public school system didn't teach them (busy with math and English and history and such), so I had to teach myself. They are:
*I can read upside down.
*I can write upside down.
*I can write backwards with my left hand.
*I can toss a room and you'd never know I was in there.
*I can breathe so shallowly you'd think I wasn't breathing at all.

Nancy Drew would be so jealous.

I love it! How about lip reading? You should master that one next!

Janet Spaeth said...

Oooh, what a good idea, Carm! Lip reading! I'd be unstoppable....

Kacie said...

Why lip read, though? Now that they have those fancy gadgets you can wear in your ear and listen to private conversations from across the room...? I've seen the infomercials on TV, and they look just like a regular hearing aid. And you DO have a pair of X-Ray glasses, right? Every spy worth her salt would, of course.

Just the ticket,, Janet! ;)

Wow! I'm impressed. So even if you're not a spy, you have some great party skills!

Kacie, the problem as I see it with those secret hearing things is that it would be my luck to sit by the ladies' room, and just as the conversation got interesting: "The fabled Goblet of Milan is now ours. I've got it safely hidden in--" someone would flush.

X-ray glasses, though. Hmmm. Intriguing idea. Let me ponder it for a moment.


But then I'd see EVERYBODY in their birthday suit. I don't deserve that punishment, LOL!

And Debby, my dear, I would be great at parties, wouldn't I? Wearing my x-ray glasses and my secret hearing thing, and reading upside down and writing backwards--yup, it's just not a party until I arrive!
